We stopped here while on a food tour (Tru Bahamian Food Tour). We were treated to the Coconut Curry Conch Chowder. It had a little "kick" to it but was very good. I wish we would have had time to stay for a second serving!

Centrally located, easy to find. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. However, we were looking for a place with a more local touch. Value was average.

We ate here our first night in Nassau. Food was good, had a great bottle of wine, nice ambience. Waitress was not particularly service minded nor did she have much knowledge or guidance about the different plates available. Didn't matter, we seemed to have selected great entrees for our family of five. Dessert was limited so we passed. One of... More

We found the food in the Bahamas to be less than wonderful generally. When we eventually ate here it was an oasis of tastiness. We both had the conch chowder followed by steak and I had the shrimp. All very good. On the downside, there was no dessert menu!
